I was raised a country girl, but I have fallen in love with the city of Austin. It’s the place where I have finally been able to be myself with friends that have become my family. My life revolves this family and my “job”, which on most days doesn’t feel like a job. So here I am. To those that don’t know me well I appear quiet and shy. My friends laugh at the thought as they call me determined and a stick of dynamite. I may not be the center of the party, but I do love being around people. I give 110% at all I do and love others deeply. I love watching sports with friends and playing games, whether it be physical sports or board games. I may not be the best, but I am very competitive. I love the outdoors whether it be reading in a hammock, camping, hiking, going for a long drive, or playing in the park with my friends’ kids. I enjoy running when I can and would love to one day run a marathon. I also enjoy travelling, but there is nothing sweeter than coming home to a place that is filled with love ones that love me for who I am. A central part of who I am is my faith. My faith helps me live out my every day life and is shared with those I keep the closest. I am a Christian that loves the Lord and has given my life to His service as I work with children and families in the local church. I love being a part of mission work in whatever form it may be as I am a girl that is not afraid to get dirty for the sake of others. Though I may be seen as a leader I do prefer to be in the background and helping in whatever form it may be. My hope is to be able to make a difference in the lives of others for the purpose of bringing others closer to God. What am I looking for? I would love to find someone that considers life an adventure and wants to share that adventure with a girl like me. My hope is to find someone with a strong faith that knows God is in control and desires to spur one another in the faith. I also hope he loves kids and desires to make a difference through investing in the lives of children as well as their families. I would love to find someone that enjoys a little spontaneity and yet enjoys just being at home with friends and family. I believe that everything happens in God’s timing and not my own, no matter how much I want something. I love to laugh and be surrounded by those I love even if all we are doing is watching a movie or reading our different books. I try to see the positive in people, but at times I can use a little help. How about you?
